Doom Eternal is out now on PC, PlayStation 4, Stadia, and Xbox One, and ahead of release, developer id Software released the full specs required to run the fast-paced shooter on PC via Steam. Can you run it on your PC? Here are the minimum and recommended stats so you can see if you're ready for it.

It's worth noting that the minimum specs will get you an experience that runs at 1080p and 60 frames per second on low-quality settings, while recommended runs at 1440p and 60 frames per second on high-quality settings. Further, the minimum GPUs are what was necessary to run 2016's Doom on the recommended settings.

Keeping in mind that Doom Eternal is also coming to Switch, eventually, it should hopefully be pretty flexible--but these are the minimum and recommended specs. Id Software also shared console technical details, including the announcement that Google Stadia won't run it at true 4K resolution. As part of this, it's now provided "Ultra-Nightmare" specs intended to run the game at 4K and 60 FPS or 1440p and 120 FPS.
